Location and Composition of the Crystal
Tiger Eye, hereafter referred to as Gold Tiger Eye to distinguish it from the other coloured Tiger Eyes, also known as Chatoyancy, from the French œil de chat meaning cat’s eye, is a fairly common crystal found in America, Brazil, Burma, Canada, India, Namibia and Western Australia. It is a Silicon Dioxide crystal and is typically a yellow-brown to a golden-brown colour. The colour changes lustre like a cat's eye when you move them because of the fibre inclusions within the crystal.
General Information & Legends
Gold Tiger Eye was used in ancient times as a talisman for protection against bad luck and curses and was worn to ward off the evil eye and to reflect back any malice or threats. It was worn by Roman soldiers in battle to aid bravery and the Egyptians believed it offered the protection of Ra (the Sungod) and Geb (God of the Growing Land). It attracts abundance and can also stimulate the rise of Kundalini energies, hence its association with the Sacral Chakra.
Its name is derived from its resemblance to a cat or tiger eye and may have also been known as Wolf Stone or Oculus Belus because of the association with the Mesopotamian god Belus who was thought to be all-seeing. The crystal was also believed to help with night vision.
Connections: Goddesses & Angels
Gold Tiger Eye honours Sekhmet, the Egyptian Goddess of War, and Freya, the Norse Goddess of Beauty and Love, who is said to reunite the souls of warriors who die in battle with their wives' souls after they die.
Gold Tiger Eye is not associated with any particular Angel.
Gold Tiger Eye is primarily associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura), relating to our power in this world. Its secondary chakras are the Sacral Chakra (Svadhistana), related to sensuality, sexuality and desire for pleasure, and the Third Eye Chakra (Ajna), relating to Insight, intuition, awareness and guidance. It balances the lower Chakras.
Healing: Physical, Emotional & Spiritual
On a physical level in crystal healing, Gold Tiger Eye is said to help with symptoms relating to the following illnesses and areas of the body: balance problems, bone disorders, depression, endocrine system and hormone balance, eye disorders, infections and night vision, fatigue, gallbladder issues, haemophilia, hepatitis, mononucleosis (glandular fever), reproductive organs, seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and throat problems. Golden Tiger Eye can provide balance to those experiencing extremes; and therefore can be helpful to those with bipolar disorder and personality disorders. It is used in Chinese medicine to restore Yin and Yang energies.
Emotionally, Gold Tiger Eye is said to assist with commitment, change, creativity, goals, pride, prosperity, self-confidence, self-criticism and self-worth.
Spiritually, Gold Tiger Eye is said to assist with animal communication, Christ consciousness, dream recall, grounding, psychic ability and spiritual protection.
